Inspire in 5

Important Update: Event Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the recent escalation of COVID-19 health concerns, The Innovators’ Tea Party committee has made the very difficult decision to cancel Inspire in 5. This is not a decision we have made lightly and we cannot wait to recommence our STEM engagement programs as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we are hard at work creating some great videos and presentations showcasing some of our incredible Women in STEM mentors, which will be available publicly and be an excellent resource for all.
All registered attendees have been contacted regarding refund options.
